Mysskin’s Psycho is now available for streaming on Netflix. The film starring Nithya Menen, Udayanidhi Stalin and Aditi Rao Hydari, is based on the Buddhist story of Angulimala, a serial killer who turns over a new leaf after meeting the Buddha.
Mysskin is famous for his dark and violent films which also have a unique lyrical quality to them. He also acted in films like Super Deluxe and Nandalala.
In Psycho, Rajkumar Pitchumani plays a disturbed young man, Anguli, who abducts women and brutally kills them. However, when he abducts Dakhini (Aditi Rao Hydari), she manages to stop him from killing her. While Udayanidhi played a blind musician in the film, Nithya Menen made a surprising appearance as a ex-cop named Kamala Das.
Though a section of the audience did not like the film because they found it illogical, it managed to generate good word of mouth and was declared a hit at the box-office.
Mysskin’s last directorial was Thupparivalan, which released three years ago with Vishal in the lead. The film is inspired from the Sherlock Holmes series, and Vishal’s character was modelled on the famous detective. However, the director and the actor have had a fall-out since and will not be working together in the sequel.
